Love to chill out and smoke a cigar with your buds? Smoking in Nairobi is a difficult affair these days, mostly because of the city’s directives prohibiting smoking indoors. Now that many restaurants and bars have started slowly getting back to the business after a pandemic induced hiatus, the after-dinner drink and cigar pics  that permeated our Instagram feeds pre-COVID 19 will make a comeback.

There are few hidden gems around town that not only allow the purchase and enjoyment of a cigar, but offer a quality spirit or beverage to pair with it. Here’s where in Nairobi you too can get cigar for the “gram” or if you’re a true connoisseur, somewhere to exhale. Remember, smoking isn’t too good for your health but….Que sera sera.
